In this special edition of 60-Second Science Video, two numbers compete. Which is larger? The number of tiny LEGO bricks it would take to build the Great Pyramid or the number of trees on Earth?

What do you get when you put a real and an imaginary number together? A complex number. No, not a complicated number (although it is kind of complicated). We’re talking about an entirely new set of numbers dubbed “complex”

Do you know what a limit is in math? Do you know how to define a circle using this idea? And do you know why you might want to? Keep on reading to find out!

A new version of quantum theory sweeps away the bizarre paradoxes of the microscopic world. The cost? Quantum information exists only in your imagination

Sophisticated computational techniques make it possible to analyze gene samples from all the bacteria in the gut at once to take a census of the species present.

Some set of numbers will definitely be drawn in the $1.3-billion Powerball Lottery, so all you have to do is make sure you hold every possible combination of numbers.
